Shoot Two - "A Visit to Click and Clack's Garage!"

Told you it was an easy one - China! Perhaps, so easy some of you didn't even fathom a guess but Carol, Mike Di., Peyton, Jim W., and Joani wanted in on the correct response!

"Oil Can Plethora!"

My next photography outing for 2015 did not happen until March but it was a unique one. I managed to get on the invite list to see the garage of NPR's talented duo, Click and Clack!

Some background - the two brothers Tom and Ray were instant celebrities on NPR Boston station WBUR-FM. In 1986 some 11,500 people had tuned in to listed to the mechanical duo. 1992 was  a special year for the show as it earned a prestigious "Peabody Award!" By 2012, it had gone national with six hundred stations and over three million listeners! 

Their garage is full of cars, auto memorabilia, and antiques from the fifties and sixties! This bookcase was filled with oil cans of all shapes, sizes and materials.

Interesting Fact. . .

Your tongue is the only muscle in your body 
that is connected at only one end.    

Leaving on a humorous note, I hope!

Now that I'm older here's what I've discovered:

I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it
